Description: Explore the valley which has largely escaped the fires, although surrounds are burnt. A good opportunity to check out a relatively intact part of southern Namadgi that has only recently reopened, and bear witness to the extent of some of the fire damage on the drive down. Flame Robins have been present in good numbers recently.
